Broken glass on the bathroom floor, no plates, cups, cutlery at breakfast, slow food from the kitchen and packed with stags and hens. Arrive...go out on the town...come back very late and don't stay too long. Clean beds and bedding....but that's all folks!

situated near cliff top easy walk to town and beach. Taxi ride to train stn. The room had been updated to an extent but more needed. 2 single beds described as double. All clean except we realised we had been sleeping on a sheet on an unprotected mattress with uncovered duvets next to skin!(no top sheet). Surely we are not... More

Room was shabby and small, no hot water for the duration of our stay. Staff not at reception (just some random guy surfing the net). £80 for one night is ridiculous for this lack of quality. Bed was acceptable and sheets seemed clean. Wouldn't recommend unless you get it cheap.

The hotel is in a good location, and is very presentable from the outside. However, inside it is showing a need of some redecoration, although it is certainly acceptable. The welcome was friendly enough. We had booked a double room, but got a twin. The two beds did not match - one was higher than the other. One was a... More

Stayed here on a stag do. bit dubious after reading other comments but basically this hotel doesn't cost the earth so do not expect it! Rooms were functional and spotlessly clean, we were in the Meamar part of the hotel which appeared to be more modern in comparison to the Glendore that is attached. Lift is tiny but they have...

Got back yesterday from a weekend in Bournemouth for AFC Bournemouth v Middlesbrough Football game and spent my time with 2 of my friends in this hotel. 1st impressions were that it is a good hotel with 2 fish tanks (I like Fish Tanks so bonus!) to greet Me. It also has a little bar (I didn't get to try)... More

Bedroom: Was small, the bed was small, the furniture looked like it had been thrown together, you had to stand on a chair to open the window (which didn't open fully), there was damp on the ceiling, the pullies for the light switches were either non existant or snapped, a TV which switched itself off after 10 minutes, lack of...

Had a room booked for about 3 months. When turned up the lady said it was cancelled, we had no idea it had been cancel. No notice no emails no nothing. We were stuck in Bournemouth with nowhere to stay, The man and lady could not tell us why it had been cancelled and wasn't helpful at all.
